Actions taken at secret Bilderberg meetings affect you and all Americans, just as they have
throughout a half-century of plotting, say independent investigators who have
tracked the shadowy group over the years. This year in Italy is typical:
Bilderberg focused on issues related to American taxes, U.S. foreign aid and a
direct UN tax on oil at the wellhead.
The power of these international financiers and
political leaders is awesome. By penetrating Bilderberg meetings for more than
two decades, reporters have been able to get advance information on the end of
the Cold War, the downfall of Margaret Thatcher as prime minister of Britain,
President Bush the Elder’s breaking of his “read my lips, no new taxes” pledge
and much, much more.
Bilderberg goes to great lengths to keep the time
and place of its meetings secret. High government officials who attend, some
from Congress, others from the White House, departments of State, Defense and
Treasury, will refuse to provide the information.
These officials know that the meeting times and
locations should be public information. The taxpayers pay their transportation
costs and they conduct public business behind closed doors, protected by a
throng of armed guards.
You will rarely read or hear the word “Bilderberg”
in either the print or broadcast media. That’s because the media is part of
this international conspiracy.
Inside you will find the names and publications of
journalists, editors and publishers who attend Bilderberg in a non-reporting
capacity—meaning they will not report what has been discussed by these powerful
Reporters, columnists and others from The
Washington Post, New York Times and Los Angeles Times attend Bilderberg and
pledge to keep details private. Similarly, people from the major networks have
attended Bilderberg on the same pledge.
If these same publications and broadcast outlets
learned that 120 football players were meeting secretly in a sealed-off resort
for three days, they would work tirelessly to learn what is transpiring. But
when 120 of the world’s most powerful people meet secretly, they are
Why? They claim it is because the private
atmosphere allows power elites to speak candidly about their views.
But when so many people with so much power get
together in one place to discuss issues that affect all of us, the American
public is owed an explanation. See pages 9 to 12 for AFP’s exclusive coverage
of this year’s event.
